    Depends what firmware you are running. Blackra1n can only jailbreak 3.1.2.

    Yeah, unless (1.) your device isn't supported, or (2.) you don't have a Mac...

    Still, as has been said, it all depends on your firmware.

    Any firmware under 3.0 is RedSn0w.

    Any firmware over 3.0 is Blackra1n.

    is that the only difference?

    maybe its because im tethered (3gtouch) but when i used redsnow on my 2g, i was able to have access to the file system with certain software allowing me to drag and drop stuff to and from the ipod.

    using blackrain allows a tethered jailbreak, but apparently i dont have access to the filesystem so i cant use those programs that allow me to copy to and from the ipod by dragging and dropping. for example, putting on roms, or backing up music/pictures.

    It doesn't enable AFC by default, which can be fixed by editing one line in a plist file... or by installing AFC2add from Cydia or Rock. That's it.
